The project MOBILIA follows the ITU IMT-Advanced recommendations and requirements for the future wireless communication systems. Among the requirements we highlight the top speed data transfer, nearly 100 Mbps for mobile applications and 1 Gbps for low mobility or nomadic. One aspect in the IMT-advanced vision is that future networks will include interoperable access systems between different radio access technologies (RAT). MOBILIA will be focused on WiMAX technology, and will discuss issues such as cross-layer techniques, cooperative schemes, techniques for scheduling and heterogeneous access.
The main objective of TST in MOBILIA is to develop mechanisms to facilitate cooperation among network elements in a heterogeneous environment.
To do so, a convergence layer able to isolate the characteristics of the underlying technologies is designed, taking care at all times for compliance with mobility-related procedures such as the continuity of session, routing or handover decision engines. At the same time the implications of service requirements on the access selection and the feasibility of various processes is studied, such as the implementation of a prototype system using existing technologies and Linux OS.
